Not good at all! They did not receive our reservation for a twin room, they had problems with hostelworld. As they couldn't find us other accomodation, they kicked some girls out of 4- bed dorm and gave it to us. This was not what we reserved, certanly we didn't want to sleep in bunk beds. The only discount was 4$! Also they didn't do all the things we gave for washing, but charged for it and didn't give us money back for it. Nö explanation as well. Do not recommend, the owner is not nice!
We stayed for 3 nights at Sloth Backpackers in a double private room. It was a great stay. The hostel is well located in the little triangle of "downtown" Santa Elena. Yorle, the owner, was very nice in welcoming us and helping us book tours. She gave great advice about which tours to do. There was a delicious breakfast prepared each morning (eggs or pancakes with lots of fruit). A great place to stay while visiting Monteverde.
